I was wrong @JCro57 finally gave us the answer.
Struck on a split planchet.
A planchet that is too thin will show the reverse die on each side “bleeding” through.
Fun coin I have had too many Cervesa's but I think I have made up my mind. I will look at it in the morning. My first impression is damage.
wow. 1.7g light. That’s super thin and explains what we are seeing here.
I think you might be right. That explains the marks on the reverse above Cent.
If it were rolled thin, I would expect the unstruck surfaces to be smoother.
When do you plan to reveal the answer?
Some say struck on Rolled thin Planchet and the others say struck on Split Planchet.
Struck on a split planchet before strike. (The split occurred on the reverse side. Note the texturing.)
